the administration says the investigation is going smoothing, the fbi has hit a bump in the road. a senior law enforcement official, telling fran townsend, the fbi wanted the u.s. military to provide perimeter support in benghazi, protection in other words, but that request was not granted. fran is a former white house homeland security adviser, serbed in the george w. bush administration. sits on the cia external advisory panel and recently visited libya with mcandrews & forbes. and former fbi assistant director tom pointes who has extensive experience in investigating attacks overseas. so there was military protection to go into benghazi, why didn't they get it? >> the answer to the question is not really clear. so it's not unusual, when you want to set up a security perimeter, you may look to the host country. if the host country is unable or unwilling to prode it, we don't know what the answer to that is, you may ask if you think you need it for u.s. military support, but that's got to go through a process. it needs state department and nsc support, the u.s. military would have to make an
units of marines fan out to these countries, fbi agents are being sent to libya to investigate the murder of the american ambassador there and three other americans were killed. the fbi. we think of the fbi as a domestic agency, it's the fbi that's part of the u.s. government that has the authority to investigate deaths of americans in all other parts of the world. fbi did it in the embassy bombings in kenya, in tanzania in 1998, and the "uss cole" bombing in 2000 and mumbai bombings in india in 2008 and now the fbi is investigating in libya or at least we're told they are on their way. the fbi being dispatched to libya is yet another reminder what happened in libya appears to be a different kettle of fish than what is happening at all the other embassies and u.s. sites around the world today. the attack that killed the u.s. ambassador in libya appears to have been a coordinated, military-style assault by well-armed men who arrived at the scene quite separately from any civilian protest. given the militant groups known to operate in the area of benghazi and the types of attacks
back and they guess what happened. how would they know? f.b.i. is investigating this. they weren't on the ground. if they knew so much about it, how come cnn got ahold of a diary by the ambassador? it's the most ridiculous concept i've heard. >> eric: so according to our reporter, u.s. officials confirm they had several intelligence assets on the ground, c.i.a. on the ground, sealing to protect assets. understand this. ambassador stevens was killed with another seal. four hours later, two more -- four hours later, two more seals were killed in the annex. in the time between the two, somebody had to know they were being attacked. >> bob: it's not a question they knew they were attacked but to confirm the intelligence agency, that the finding this is a terror cyst attack it's not possible. >> kimberly: it is possible. they had intelligence and reports prior to the ince tent that there was unrest and problems in the area. they knew that. they saw what happened. in 24 hours they labeled this a terrorist attack. let me finish, please. in order to release assets. special forces, seals,
fbi agent echoed that sentiment. >> the countries of middle east believe there is a disengagement policy by the united states and that lack of leadership there or at least clarity on what our position is causing problems. i, if we all decide to rally around the video as the problem we're going to make a serious mistake and we're going to make i think diplomatic mistakes as we move forward if we think that is the only reason people are showing up at our embassy to conduct acts violence. bill: the romney campaign says the obama administration is failing to throughout that part of the world. heather: there is more trouble brewing between israel and iran as a nightmare scenario could be coming close to reality. prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the iran will be the on the brink of nuclear capabilities in just six months. he use ad metaphor to describe the new emergency and claims that iran is developing nuclear power for peaceful purposes. listen to this. >> denies the holocaust, promises to wipe out israel and engages in terror throughout the world. like timothy mack say walking

and certainly not a specific threat to the consulate that i'm aware of. and as far as to the risks that the fbi reported to you, really have to ask them for why they made that determination. i don't know. >> reporter: what dempsey is saying there, brooke, is that there was intelligence about these groups in eastern libya around benghazi coalescing and said there's nothing specific as to any direct threat against the ambassador. even though the ambassador had been indications he believed he was on an al qaeda hit list, the chairman of the joint chiefs says the intelligence he saw didn't indicate that level of specificity but in the month, the month before the attack on benghazi, there was a threat of intelligence about the extremist groups in the region. brooke? >> barbara starr for us with the new information of the chairman of the joint chiefs and the secretary of defense, thank you very much. there are still so many other questions. thank you. because in addition to this, cnn exclusive reporting here the fbi agents haven't even stepped foot on the crime scene in benghazi. we'll tell you why,
americans. the fbi has been telling us in the past couple days, their investigation is underway and apparently still underway outside of libya. tensions and security situation is still too difficult in there to put a full team of fbi investigators on the ground according to reports. they're closed about this. what we can confirm. u.s. navy destroyers in the air and aerial drones and they're doing everything they can to try to begin this investigation. what is a very difficult and dangerous landscape. back to you. >> alisyn: greg palkot. thank you so much for that update. let's talk about the military situation in terms of what the security was in the consulate in benghazi. whether or not it was accurate. and catherine herridge has published an article in foxnews.com where she outlined all of the attacks leading up to tuesday at that should have been red flags and meant we were beefing up our security on september 11th. >> as a panoply of attacks, june 6th an ied thrown at the perimeter of the consulate in benghazi. on the 11th the british motorcade came under attack by an rpg. o
. >> the fbi is, has the lead in this investigation. the information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack, that what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. megyn: we are now awaiting a briefing from the state department on the anti-american protests rocking the middle east and the muslim world. you can bet this question will come up, but what will the state department say? it is now refusing all questions about what happened in libya because it claims an fbi investigation is underway, and it says you have to refer your questions to the justice department, but they won't talk to you either. we are going to have what we can learn from that briefing and catherine herridge whose reporting this is with more of this exclusive just ahead right here. >>> we are also getting new video, riots raging across the globe today, and as the anti-american protests spread beyond north africa and the middle east, it is posing a seriou

-- spblt for three weeks later. 20 days past the september 11th attacks and fbi isn't in benghazi, they're in tripoli, for security reasons they say, they say that the libyan security forces aren't providing them with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be an internal reason, it must be someone else they can't go in. >> clayton: bee seeds the tactffac tactffac fact-- besides the fact that libya is a free country and not the hot son that-- as it's unfolding and discussions about james clapper on the show this morning, who is james clapper we'll taking a look at his record. he made headlines in 2010 when asked about that london terrorist attack by diane sawyer and appeared he didn't know what had happened or unfold
of there the next day. we were told by susan rice the fbi's investigating. the fbi has never gone in to banghazi. this is 15, 16 days later. that tells you banghazi is an utterly unsafe city. you know, it's al-qaedaville, if you will, if the fbi can't go into the consulate and investigate. barack obama is saying we've won the war against al-qaeda, we're winning the war, they're in retreat, all the rest of it. if al-qaeda is that strong in banghazi, the libyan government can't deal with this thing, what did we liberate there? al-qaeda is in the arabian peninsula, it's in anbar province, it's in libya, it's in pakistan. the main one, and hillary clinton just referred to it today, take a look at northern mali. it's the size of france. the affiliate of al-qaeda has taken over the place entirely. she seemed to suggest the attack might have originated there. right next door an american general has been in there. they're talking about a 3,000-man army to invade that area. what's at stake is obama's entire middle east policy and all this -- you know, queue sama is dead and year on a roll. >> sean: if th
: the fbi open -- justice piece. >> reporter: the fbi opened the investigation to sort out whether this was a protest that got out of hand or an organized terrorist attack. a government source says the fbi is sending investigators to germany to interview personnel who evacuated the consulate in libya. at the state department danielle nottingham. lesli, back to you. >>> three americans injured in the benghazi attack are being treated at a u.s. military hospital in germany. the remains of ambassador stevens and the three others killed with him will arrive back in the u.s. tomorrow. >>> both sides in the presidential race campaigning today in the battle ground state of virginia. you are looking live at mary washington university where the first lady michelle obama is speaking even as we speak. earlier today republican presidential candidate mitt romney was at a place called van dyke park in fairfax and our own bruce leshan was there checking him out. what was the deal? >> yesterday even as these details of this libyan tragedy were unfolding, mitt romney actually held a news conference
thing if we're starting to move forward on the justice piece. >> reporter: the fbi open an investigation as officials try to sort out whether this was a protest that got out of hand or an organized terrorist attack. danielle nottingham, cbs news, the state department. >> three americans who were injured in the benghazi attack are being treated at a u.s. military hospital in germany. receipt a mans of ambassador stevens -- the remains of ambassador stevens and the three others killed will arrive back in this country tomorrow. >>> we are learning more about the attack itself. every room in that american consulate was torched, vandalized and looted. the compound on a residential street in the port city of benghazi was not heavily fortified. those attackers bombed the guard house and took over the main building and completely destroyed it and threw pieces of furniture into the pool. that raid lasted 4 1/2 hours, but somehow none of the attackers were caught or killed. >>> on the campaign trail today both side were in the battleground state of virginia. we begin with mitt rom
consulate to be lightly guarded. what has changed in libya such a short time that our f.b.i. agents, most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city? meantime, republicans kept up the drum beat on the administration's response and the president's foreign policy. >> the response was slow. it was confused, it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack. in this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself but the problem is bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> reporter: he said he would let others decide if the president was involved in a cover-up. meantime, obama advisors responded to intel information as they received it. they say the attack was a complex in situation and wasn't clear this was a terrorist attack. >> the information was arrived at and determinations were made. that was shared with the american people. i think again the focus needs to be how do we make sure our facilities and ambassadors
with the latest on the fbi investigation there. gregg? >> reporter: thanks for taking me. american officials here on the ground tell me that they are pleased are -- pleased with the libyan government. the militias have been tried to trouble here and possibly tie to the killing of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. all weekend, we have been watching the public anger and the violence out of benghazi, seeing the compound ransacked and protesters and militia members being killed. in response, the government says that by tuesday, the armed gangs here have to cooperate. they have to give up their weapons and leave their bases. some are skeptical that this will happen. still. the islamist group ansar al-sharia has left two cities. they are suspected of direct involvement. now to the investigation. the developments this week enappear to be positive, simply put, it's a bit of quick, rough justice for the deaths of stevens and the three other americans, and conversations today for the officials, libyan officials, both here and in benghazi, it appears their investigation into the killings i
questions heading over his head. >> it seems miguel has made contact with fbi. he's not under direct investigation for anything and we need to make that clear, right? >> reporter: as far as we know owes not. they haven't closed the door completely on that. what the fbi doesn't want to do, they don't want to overreact. they don't want to do the same thing that other people have done. they don't want to make the mistake of shutting down free speech and creating problems in a different way. so they want to investigate everything having to do with this case, including his past including what he told his cast members and there there was any fraudulent activity in making thisfilm. at this point he doesn't seem to be under direct threat of investigation. >> i you know got your hands on the film permit for the film that is now called "innocence of muslims." what did it shed light on in terms of the story? >> reporter: these film permits are just given out. the film did air or showed just a couple of blocks from here in some form in june but the film permit itself are usually public record, u
learn from bret baier and his reporting as of right now there hasn't been a single fbi agent on the ground in benghazi. we're all looking toward that investigation because that's what we're told from the administration will provide more answers, the fbi investigation, if no one is on the ground what are we to make of that? >> i think you make a couple of things. why is anybody not on the ground? is it too dangerous for the fbi to go there? secondly if the administration says, hold your horses wait until we got full investigation and we find out there is no investigation, again, it is that drip, drip, drip. what did they know? when did they know it? why are they trying to cover it up and what is going on? it wasn't so unsafe in benghazi a cnn reporter went there several days ago and got the ambassador's personal diary. maybe somebody is there but not the united states fbi. jenna: we'll watch the continuing to develop story. kt, thanks for your insights. well have much more on the controversy over the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. top senators on the senate foreign rel
house is referring questions about the libyan consulate attack to the fbi. an ongoing investigation they say. ambassador bolton joins us next to weigh in on all of this.

no longer comment on it because the fbi's conducting an investigation, and, therefore, if you have questions, bring them to the department of justice, the same department of justice you used to run. but they said the d. of justice isn't going the talk to you either. then we started to get leaks about who was really behind this, and it wasn't spontaneous, and this was a planned terror attack, and there was some heads up about it, and now they come out and say, okay, it was a terror act. does that shift it? no longer doj, now this is a military thing that the pentagon should be talking to us about? >> correct. correct. and, um, it was -- it's obvious that, it was always obvious that it was a terrorist attack. the fact is that the ambassador's presence in, um -- was supposed to be confidential, the fact is that they knew -- megyn: got to cut you off, general, because we're going up against a hard break. thank you so much. be right back. megyn: well, an unemployment report released this morning suggests things are not getting better on the jobs front. economists expected 375,000 new jobless clai
been down this road before. >> reporter: i have. we were back here in 2006 when fbi received what it believed to be a credible tip, and they dug at the horse farm quite a bit. they spent a lot of money doing so but didn't find anything. now they're working on another tip. as you can see what's going on just over our shoulder here, the digging has begun inside that shed. what the police department is doing with some expert help is digging a small hole in concrete inside there so they can fit in a drill to get a soil sample. then they hope to deliver that on monday to michigan state university to try to determine whether there are in fact human remains below there. the question of course is one of many questions. why do police think that the tipster in this case is credible? one reason why is that they said that he claimed that he saw what could have been a body being buried right here in this area around the same time that jimmy hoffa disappeared back in 1975. the police chief says the tipster never claimed that he saw jimmy hoffa being buried here, but the timing is in the vicinit
